I would like to start out with thanking everyone that takes their time and posts reviews on this site. I did a lot of research on picking a place and this site helped me pick the Del Mar. My wife an I flew down to Mexico from Colorado for a four nighter. We left CO it was -5 degrees, landed... More

We first went to del Mar as a family group of 12 aged between 17 and 75 from England. I must admit that I was a little worried after booking it and seeing the bad reviews on the food. Well I have only one thing to say about the food It was fantastic. I travel for a living between South... More

I'll preface this by saying that we have very little experience at resorts of any kind except for one trip to Disney World when our kids were young. So we had no expectations prior to our visit to the Paraiso del Mar over Christmas 2006. From the moment we arrived until our reluctant departure, we felt like we had stepped... More

My family and I (Father-in-law, Mother-in-law, 2 brother-in-laws, 1 girlfriend, my husband, and myself...7 of us total) stayed here from December 26th through January 2nd. I consider myself to have done enough traveling through Mexico to be able to compare resorts to the Iberostar Del Mar. We booked through Apple. Our bus ride from the airport was only about 30...

I have to start this review by stating that I traveled to this resort at the end of January. In addition, I would like to provide some context for this review. I have done a fair amount of “roughing it” type travel which, at one point, had me sleeping on a piss-stained rug and drinking yak-butter tea in a Tibetan... More

This was my first trip ever like this, so I don't really have anything to compare it to. Of course, that also means I absolutely enjoyed myself and can't wait to go back! I was on this trip with my entire family - 22 of us, and the staff was always very helpful with accomodating such a large group. We... More

We stayed at the del Mar 12/20 - 12/28/06 and wish we were there still. The del Mar grounds are vast and very tropical. And while we wanted the exercise, we did wait for the "train" several times. After visiting Cancun 15+ years ago, we were counting down to when we would get sick again. But no more...IB has done... More

I stayed at the Del Mar from November 26th - November 30th. I have been to many all inclusives in Punta Cana and Cancun/Rivieria Maya - but I had never stayed at an Iberostar. When we checked in we were immediately upgraded to a junior suite in building 11. The suite was fantastic and I didn't mind the walk to... More
